Scutari la in the hands the Montenegrins, the Uulgars are shelling the suburbs of Adrlunoplc. TtilH la the situation In the Balkans to-night. Two of the allied States havo reached the objective points of their campaigns and the Bulgarian army seems to be hemming In Ailrlanople successfully. The fall of Scutari, the Turkish town cn the lakesldo for which the Mon tenegrins havo striven so lone, Is no preal surprise. When the Turkish Min ister of War admitted the other day that It might bo captured and when the Turks began to withdraw quietly from tht forts In front of the city military men dally expected word .or Its fall. Hut Uskub and Its easy conquest dc pttc severe fighting furnished a sur prise and to-night there are wild dem onstrations of joy In the Servian capi tal. The battle of Koumanovo, won after desperate fighting, apparently took the heart out of the Turks. The banjak of Novl-Bazar Is now en tirely In tho hands of Servlu. She claims all that province us her cwn. All along the line from Scutari td Adrlanoplo the allies are pressing for ward, encouraged by their victories, al though they have been won with tre mendous casualties, und heartened by the apparent unwillingness of the Turks to take tho offensive. North of Adrlanoplo the Bulgers are shelling tho city, while their advance Is swinging xouth to meet the main force of the Turks concentrated some twenty-five miles bIow the city. One Bulgarian brlgudo ). nlrtody at Vlza, Bixtyrtwo miles east by bouth of Adrl anoplo. Tho army's headquarters will be moved south from Vranja In a few days. Toward the Constantinople road a strong Uulgar column Is moving by way of PravodIJa and Cadera and nn other division Is driving down tha right bank of the Marltza Mvcr. Thcso troops are pressing through wooded "country and urc being tlercely opposed by Turkish Irregulars. Much nf tho fighting Is with daggers alone and nil of It Is practically hand to hand. Should the Bulgarian columns be abln to get In touch with each other Adrlanople will bo cut off from the otilaldo world and its fall will be only a matter of days. The Turks way that their army Is not yet fully mobilized, and they promise different results from those of tho re frnt days of the war when they can pet 4.000 men concentrated in front of Cotihtantlnople for the defence of their threatened capital. The details of the victory of the Servian arms over the Turks at Kouraa i.ovo tell a story In many ways a rep lica f the battlo ut Kirk Klllssch. Al Koumanovo too thero was hand to hand lighting of tint fiercest sort over a fog hung mountain country. Servian artillerymen concentrated their flic on three squadrons of Turkish (av.iiry charging across a platn and . llli rally blew them to pieces. The Crown I'rlnco of Kervla was in the thkkctt of the lighting. The St. Petersburg correspondent of th- (tbnrrver says that he has the high lit authority when ho announces that the Balkan war will be stopped by the Powers In a few weeks. In all tho bourses of Europe a crush Inn defeat of Turkey Is looked upon ns a calamity by the brokers. The Servian legation here has received Hie following official details of the battle ef Koumanovo: The offensive was taken by the Turku, who opened the attack on the Servian positions nt 2:30 P. M. Wednesday. It-Tin was falling at tho time and the bat tlelteld was shrouded in fog. The Servian army occupied positions about five miles ' from Koumanovo. The Turkish attack "as successfully resisted by part of the Servian urtny. Thore were heavy losses rn lx)th sldos. Tho lighting continued throughout Wednesday afternoon and hv dusk the ' Dslaught of tho Turks had been stayed. i o nock Thursday morning the Ser vians attacked the Turks, who were flrongly entronohod.

Then as Smith prepared to land something went wrong with the engines, so he volplaned to earth, aim ing nt a new ploughed Held as a good place to light. And well It was that he picked out a soft spot, for when the machine touched the ground it turned over and the young pair ploughed through the freshly turned earth for some distance. ' Both were rendered unconscious, but when they were revived the first word of each was Inquiry about the other. Smith suffered a sprained ankle, while the girl was cut about the eye and her back was wrenched. As a result the wedding did not take placo to-night as planned, but has been postponed until Monday.

O'Ryan Called Demoral izing to Service. STATE SOLDIERY TORN Threats of Resignation and Requests to Be Super numeraries. REVENGE STORIES HEARD Meanwhile Adjt.-Gen. Verbeek Irhucs Orders for Hegi niental Changes. Twelve commanding officers of tho National Guard, two of whom at least are lirlgadler-Generals, mailed protests to Gov. Dlx yesterday against the order relieving Major-Gen. John F. O'ltyan of all command except in the field on active duty and making Adjutant-General Verbeek supreme. They called the ac tion illegal i. id demoralizing to the Guard. There were Intimations that the twelve Lieutenant-Colonels, chiefs of depart tnents on Gen. O' Ryan's staff, drafted to the staff of Gen. Verbeek by the Friday order, will object to serving, and will ask to be placed on the supcrnu mcrnry list, waiting for a change of administration on January 1. There were reports that some mem bcra of the personal stall of Gov. Dlx would resign. The action of Gov. Dlx has torn tho State soldiery asunder as nothing ha done in two decades. "Demoralizing," "paralyzing" and "po Utlcallzlng" were only three of the mild est characterizations of Guard officers yesterday1! It was said to be a return to conditions existing prior to 1S93, when the Adjutant-General, a political appointee surviving only for the term. of the Governor naming him, exercised slmlUtr powers. Some hinted at it as the revenge ot one high officer of the Guard upon an other because of an Incident In thli city. .Others Just as broadly hinted al the supplementary revenge of a Tam many leader, Percy Nagle, through hit henchman. Assemblyman Cuvilller, be. cause the ambition ot Nagle In a cer tain direction was balked. The name of Lieutenant-Commander Kckford De Kay, Gov. Dlx's aid: the Adjutant-General, Nagle and Cuvilller wore all Joined together yesterday In a narration of a scries of Incidents which led up to the Executive action of Friday. Major-Gen. O'ltyan would not say u word about the situation and bis secre tary put up magnificent Interference be. tween him and all reporters. Friend of the Mnjor-Gcnenil declared that this was done because the first word of criticism, protest or censure uttered by the General will be the signal for a court-martial at Albany for violating the military code. The Adjutant-General has received a legal opinion from Judge Advocate General William W. Ladd, a lawyer and authority on military law, declaring that the action In making a political ap pointee, with no previous Guard experi ence chief of the forces Is Illegal. It Is not known that the Governor has seen this. Other lawyers with military training In the city arc now going over the case, with a view of ascertaining whether the Governor's action may not be reviewed by the War Deportment of the United States, which makes an appropriation for the Guard of the State. It was established that Major-Gen O'Rynn had never asked for a salary of $8,000 a year, as the Friday despatches from Albany stated, but that lie did nsk for allowances during tho time he was actively employed In preparing for the Joint manoeuvres In Connecticut. At the time he made the application to Adjutant-General Verbeek, who disal lowed It, the Major-General told friends that he was doing so with the knowl edge and consent ot Gov. Dlx. That tho whole affair is an attempt by Gov. Dlx to get even with Charles F. Murphy was denied by tho representa tives of Tammany leaders, who have been fighting Gen. O'ltyan ns well us by friends of the General. That there would be trouble between tho Adjutant-General and the Major General was prophesied In the Guard so noon as It became known that on May 1 of this year O'Ryan. a Major, would bo Jumped Into thu Major-Qcneralship, Tho Adjutant-aencral, appointed out of civil life by tho Governor, was known not to be a man who caret to confine himself simply to auditing bills and passing on requisitions, while Major-Gen. O'Ryun, who has devoted his life to State soldiering, attended the Government artillery school at Fort Hlley, Kansas, and studied under the best of military masters. There wan no politico In his appoint ment, as OoV, Dlx himself said when It became known that he would be chosen to succeed Charles F. Iloe, who had reached tho age limit. No politicians were back of him so fur oh could be learned, but his In dorsers were Major-Gen. Leonard S, Wood, Chief of Staff; other general of. fleers of tho United States army an! the olllclal referees and umpires who had followed tho young officer In th.i field nt tho Joint manoeuvres since he had risen to the command of tho First Mattery, succeeding dipt. Louis Wen- del At Pine Plains his battery was re- ported to be tho most efficient of the State troops there engaged, and similar reports were returned for him at other places. Tho trouble which was prophesied would be duo, It was thought, not only to the personul desire of the Adjutant- T Continued on Second Page, COURT HITS BROKERS' RULE. Stock ltnusjht on Margin Mont He Held for Caalomer. The Appellate Term of the Supremo Court refused yesterday to permit the brokerage firm of Charles A. Btoncham & Co. to appeal to tho Appellate Di vision from a ruling that whdn brokers agree to buy stock on margin for a customer they must have the stock on hand to deliver to tho customer as soon an he Is ready to take It up and make full payment. Pierre A. Shiel got Judgment against the Stoneham firm because the brokers told him he would have to wait for hta stock until It could be brought here from Salt Lake Olty or Toronto. Coun sel for the firm In asking permission to appeal said the case is of great Im portance In the brokerage world because It Is the custom of all brokers on both the exchanges and the curb to hypothe cate and borrow money on stocks pur chased on margin for customers. "Tho case has been called to the at tention of brokers In all cities," tho law yer said, "and they all agree that if this decision stands there must be a great change In the business methods of brokers."

Straus, after touring Now York State and speaking In tho West, returned to his own town to do some campaigning last night. He whirled from Getty Square, In Yonkcrs, to 125th street, speaking In five places to 9,000 people, and everywhere he was met with such enthusiasm an must have made him glad to get home again. He apont the evening chiefly criticising William Sulzer, the Democratic candi date for Governor. The Sulzer attitude toward "Tammanytsm" and toward civil service reform uppearcd to incense the Progressive candidate more than any thing else. Mr. Sulzer says he proposes to fol low In the footsteps of Samuel J. Til- den," said Mr. Hjtraus. "Well, he must remember that Tilden s first work was to down Tammany Hull and the Tweed ring. Sulzer Is not downing the Murphy ring he dare not. 'Mr. Sulzer will tell you that he Is the nominee of the Democracy of the Em pire State; that his boss is William Sulzer. He won't tell you who his boss has been for the last twenty-five years. He has the advantage of me." I never have been the candidate of Tammany, and It doesn t look as if I ever shall be. Mr. Straus said of the Public Service Commission that he considers it "one of the most Important bulwarks In the State against the rapacity of corpora tlons."

"Dlx once filled a vacancy nnd he chose the bosom friend of Charlie. Mur phy," declared tho Progressive candi date. "Mr. Cram was tho man. Now Sulzer has commended Mr. Dlx's ad ministration.

He would welcome nnybody and everybody very cordially to Albany, lie declared, even the boses, only he should want them not to forget that he was bosi He would even be glad to see Mr, Hedges, he said, nnd declared that the Republican candidate hud no chuuee of coming to Albany as anything except a visitor. He referred to the "scintilla tion and charm" of Mr. Hedges, but de clared that something more than these finalities was needed to "beat Billy Barnes. Mr. Straus said that as far us he was concerned he curried two big sticks around with him "one for Hilly Barnca and one for Charlie Murphy." Tho candidate made mention of Gov, Wilson, calling him "that fine scholar nnd eminent professor." "Mr. Wilson says our Progrerslvo platform Is a fine literary essay," said Mr. Straus, "and I'm not disposed to dispute him. It In a fine literary essay, and that's more than I can say of Guv. "Wilson's platform. His reminds me of u moving picture show now you s?o It and now you don't." It was In the Second Battery Armory, at 177th street and Bathgate avenue, that Mr, Straus encountered his most enthusiastic) audience. The chairman of the meeting, the Itev, Dr. Milton C. Hess, had considerable difficulty In stop, ping tho cheering so as to give Mr. Straus a chance to speak. As a matter of fact he didn't stop It. The candi date himself had to step to the front of tho platform and raise his hands be fore anything like order was estab lished. The candidate was whlrlell away from tho armory to Furman's Casino, ut Prospect und Westchester avenues, where he Bpoke for fifteen minutes to 2,000. piople.

GUARD WHITMAN AND JUSTICE GOFF Friends of Judge, Jury and Lawyers Alarmed for Them. McINTYRE IS ARMED No Fear Shown, but Venom ous Threats Are Ad mitted by All. INFORMERS ARB QUAKING Gunmen Get Suspicious of Lefty Louirj Becker Cries He Was Railroaded. An extraordinary situation in a civil Ized community has developed since Lieut. Becker was found guilty at mur der In the first degree. The Judge of tha court, the lawyers for both sides, tha Jurors and the witnesses cannot walk tho streets with the same feeling of safety that they had before the trial. Justice John W. Goff was threatened by letter and over his private phone be-' fere tho Jury returned the verdict. When he leaves his home In West 104th street his assistant secretary, Thomas Kearney, or ' an armed guard accom panlcshlm. District Attorney Charles S. Whitman Is compelled by the Insistence ot his staff to permit Detective Albert Thomas to keep near him when he Is not In his private office or In his home at 37 Madi son avenue. He has received threats that he wilt not live to prosecute an other case. John F. Mclntyre, chlct counsel for Becker, makes no secret of his belief that his life is In danger, Llr. Mclntyre carries a revolver and Is ready to use It at any moment. Toward tho close of the trial and whle he was standing Just outside of the court room a gangmuu. muttered in his ear that his comments ubout Jack Rose's wife would cost hln his life. Rose, Webber, Vallon and Schepps, the Informers, have received messages in the West Side court prison that If they havo any property to dispose ot they might as well make their wills, These threats are supposed to emanate from, the friends of thc gunmen. Gyp the Blood, Xef ty Louie, Dago Frank and Whitcy Lewis. The Informers are chilled with fear. Shapiro Live In Fear. Shapiro, the chauffeur, who turned against the gunmen and who announced yeaterday that he Is ready to Identify them as the murderers of Rosenthal, had told his lawyer, Aaron J. Levy, that he fears he will be shot or stabbed as soon as he Is let out of tjie West Side court prison. Shapiro has been threatened with death as a "squealer." Sir. Lovy thinks that he Is no longer safe because he permitted his client. Shapiro, to take the witness stanJ against Becker, and because he has ad vised Shapiro to testify against the gun men when they come to trial. Mr. Le. y receives venomous threats dally. Friends of the Jurors who convicted Becker have been getting anonymous letters nnd telephone culls, some of which have been alarming. Justice Goff, the District Attorney, Mr. Mclntyre and others who dlsllko i sensationalism have sought to minimize the facts that Indicate that men who hire out for assassination and assaults soek an opportunity to cap the Rosenthal case with a crime more atrocious evert than the killing of Rnsenthul; hut de- i j, .... ,... ,,., ..,.. j , ' Y'frlm.fB (lirontu lmvn t,(trm rtnrt i'.r1 nn,l that common sense precautions are be ing taken. So far as Justice Goff Is concerned, i lm; ftuN Knows mai on one uay o; ine trial the Justice had reason to believ that his life and the lives ot counsel were endangered because of tho pres ence In the court room of ut least twenty llcved the situation was so perilous that It might be necessary to order Sheriff llurburncr to fill tho court room with armed deputies. His orders to the po lice nnd the court officers were sevore and resulted In Increased vigilance. Justlcu Golf's courage was such that he was willing to walk unaccompanied from court to meals or home, but his friends would not permit it because they knew what threats had gone to him. Mr. Whitman made light of perhaps 100 letters that wero written to him during and after the trial. He did not want to mako these letters public or to suggest that In New York city a prose cutor might lose his life because he waa doing his duty; but the members of the detective staff attached to the District Attorney's office Albert Thomas, I3clward Itaynes, Barney Flood and Frank Russo realized then and now the gravity of the situation and have not let their chief get out ot their sight. Mr. Mclntyre usually has with him Jackson Becker, a brother ot his client. Mr. Lovy goes armed. The utmost pre cautions aro taken to safeguard 'the Ulves of ItoBO, Webber, Vallon and Schepps, at well as tho lives of Shapiro, Thomas Coupe and other witnesses. A man who Is familiar with all of theso facts and who has estimated the bitterness developed by tho trial of Decker guve it as his opinion yesterday that nobody need be surprised .at an at tempt to assassinate some one of the chief figures In tho case.
